‘Gimme Shelter’: Newsom falls far short on his big housing promises

Governor Gavin Newsom took office four years ago with some of the biggest promises on housing imaginable.

The state would build 3.5 million new homes by 2025, five times California’s average annual housing production. And its efforts to address the state’s housing crisis are similar to the “Marshall Plan,” the US’s multibillion-dollar campaign to rebuild Western Europe after World War II.

Now that Newsom is running for a second term, how has he fared? In this episode of Gimme Shelter: The California Housing Crisis Podcast, we review Newsom’s records on housing and homelessness. We found that while the governor has prioritized housing issues more than his predecessors, he has fallen far short of his goals.

“Gimme Shelter,” a bi-weekly podcast exploring why living in California is so expensive and what the state can do about it, features Liam Dillon, reporting on housing affordability issues for the Los Angeles Times, and Manuela Tobías, Reporter for Housing CalMatters.
